On Friday the FDA deemed safe the seafood caught in waters open for fishing, and they also confirmed that some 1.8 million gallons of chemical dispersants that were poured into the sea to dissipate the massive oil slick was unlikely to show up in the food chain. And since the FDA has been playing this strictly by the books, operating openly and honestly with the American public, Obama plans to serve Gulf seafood to his guests at his 49th birthday party.
PR stunts like this are what creates stupid.
Whether you believe the seafood is safe or poisoned, whether you believe the FDA has been honest, the idea that we are supposed to be impressed with the President serving Gulf seafood is ridiculous. People can smoke one cigarette and never catch cancer. People can eat Kentucky Fried Chicken and not have a heart attack. The scientists who question the safety of Gulf seafood never said you’d take one bite and drop dead.
This is about long term effects and these effects are unknown because Corexit has never been used to this extent. Regardless of what the FDA says, they are finding evidence it has entered the food chain from Texas to Florida, primarily in crab larvae and they will be studying these effects from now into the far flung future.
So, whether the food is safe really will depend on who you believe.
